  Mozi - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Mozi denounced offensive warfare, extravagant funerals, and music, and tried to replace Chinese family and clan structure with the concept of bo-ai which can be translated as "impartial caring" or "universal love".
Traditionally, Mozi was supposed to have descended from the Lord of Guzhu (孤竹君), himself descended from Shennong the legendary emperor.
Modern scholarship suggests that "Mo" was not in fact the clan name of Mozi, as it is not encountered during the Spring and Autumn and Warring States Periods, but that "Mo" was rather the name of the mohist school itself, derived from the name of a criminal punishment (tattooing of the forehead of criminals).

Though Mozi's school faded into obscurity after the Warring States period, he was studied again two millennia after his death: Both the Republican revolutionaries of 1911 and the Communists saw in him a surprisingly modern thinker who was stifled early in Chinese history.
Like Confucius, Mozi idealized the Xia Dynasty and the ancients of Chinese mythology, but he criticized the Confucian belief that modern life should be patterned on the ways of the ancients.
Mozi argued that benevolence comes to human beings “as naturally as fire turns upward or water turns downward”, provided that persons in position of authority illustrate benevolence in their own lives.

 Mo Tzu
139-141: Mozi's denunciation of li (rites) was a reaction against the excessive emphasis on rituals by the followers of Confucius that Mozi felt they deviated from the teachings of the true Confucius: li should be used to illustrate the dao, or heavenly way, not to be practiced as an end in itself.
Mozi's emphasis on a simple life made him idealize the unadorned purely functional culture created by the first sage-kings, and his hero was Yu, (154) who, as king, reputedly was so busy building water irrigation projects that he did not enter his own door three times passing it.
Mozi, de Bary, p.72) love as such was not so much an emotion as an abiding moral disposition (149) With the enforcer of universal love being the ruler (150) because rulers had charismatic power.

 Mozi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most historians believe that Mozi was a member of the lower artisan class who managed to climb his way to an official post.
He was a master engineer and craftsman, designing everything from mechanical birds to "cloud ladders" used to besiege city walls.
Though he did not hold a high official position, Mozi was sought out by various rulers as an expert on fortification, and managed to attract a large following during his lifetime which rivaled that of Confucius.

 Mo Zi and
Mozi's belief in universal love as a result of enlightened self interest contrasted with Confucius's goal of social stability and harmony achieved through social hierarchy, and proper self-cultivation on the part of each individual.
The paradox of Mozi's criticism of Confucian affront of social hierarchy.
The greatest paradox perhaps comes in the form of Mozi's criticism of Confucius (75-76): charging the latter with no proper recognition of social hierarchy, with mourning of wife/son the same length as father/mother; and with the belief in fate and thus trusting little to human initiatives.

 Mohism > Texts and Authorship (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
At the time the Mozi was compiled, each of the ten doctrines was represented by three identically titled essays, labeled the "upper," "middle," and "lower" parts of their respective triad.
Since much of the content of the texts is attributed to Mozi in this way, readers have traditionally been inclined to treat them as generally reliable reports of his speech and to regard Mozi as the author of all the ideas the texts present.
Accordingly, instead of discussing the ideas of "Mozi," a historical figure whose exact relation to the texts is unknown, we should discuss the diverse, sometimes conflicting statements of "Mohist" doctrines, understood to be an evolving set of views preserved in a collection of texts probably composed by different persons over many years.

 Mo Tzu
Mozi attacks commonsense traditionalism (Confucianism) as a prelude to his argument for the utility standard.
